Amy Salovin, assistant director, Office of Faculty Development, builds strong programs and resources that promote academic success. She is committed to supporting the career progression of research investigators at all levels.
Amy Salovin supports the career development of CHOP-based Penn faculty through individualized and group approaches. Salovin and her team keep the unique needs of faculty groups at the center of program and resource development.
Salovin spent the earlier part of her career conducting a broad range of research working directly with faculty investigators. This research led her to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia as a research staff member in the Division of Neurology. Several stretch assignments under the guidance of mentors in Research Administration led her to pursue a career in CHOP Research Institute Administration focused on research skill development.
Since late 2020, Salovin has led the Office of Faculty Development (OFD). Her academic research background coupled with program development experience has provided her both a clear understanding of the unique needs of faculty and the skills in which to build relevant training and educational programs to best meet those needs.
Salovin enjoys working collaboratively and aims to bridge efforts among various CHOP and Penn groups to best support our investigators. She passionately serves our faculty, especially our early-stage investigators, as they establish their careers. Salovin regularly engages key faculty stakeholders, including the OFD Advisory Group and individual faculty members, to ensure the office creates programs and resources that faculty find valuable and truly impactful.
Her personal mission is to alleviate investigators' perceived barriers to success, and to help individuals navigate their career progression so that they can focus their energy on what’s most important — generating their next scientific breakthrough.
